Konni is situated 11 km southeast of Pathanamthitta. The place was famous as an elephant training center before the central government put an end to crude old method of elephant catching and training. But the
elephant cage at Konni was preserved and it attracts hundreds of tourists.
Konni has an extensive forest cover and an eco-tourism project is being actively considered here. Cash crops like rubber, pepper, coffee, and ginger are grown in abundance here.
